24. Las Vegas Raiders
Week 16 result: Lost to the Steelers, 13-10
Week 17 opponent: vs. San Francisco 49ers
New Year’s Resolution: Believe in Josh McDaniels (or don’t.) McDaniels got off to a terrible start to his tenure with the Raiders, and aside from a brief burst of relatively decent play in the middle of the year, his first season in Las Vegas has been a massive disappointment. McDaniels announced this week that quarterback Derek Carr was set to be benched in favor of Jarrett Stidham, indicating that Carr might not be with the team much longer. If the Raiders are going to put their eggs in the McDaniels basket, so be it, but it feels like he holds at least as much, if not more, responsibility for this team’s ineptitude as Carr.
